About the Event
Fortran is used a lot in the context of HPC. For many, it has a reputation of being an old and ugly programming language. However, modern Fortran is a far cry from Fortran 77 that its detractors have in mind. Fortran 2003/2008 is a language that is well tailored towards scientific computing. This training introduces the language and its features.
- basics: control flow statements, data types, functions
- arrays and pointers
- user defined types/classes
- file I/O
- command line interaction
- linear algebra with BLAS and Lapack
This course is primarily targeted at researchers that would like/need to perform large scale computations using HPC facility - current and potential VSC-users.
